Inclusive Higher Education Opportunities Grant Program Details

We are excited to announce the Inclusive Higher Education Opportunities Grant Application is now open.   Please click here to access the application packet.

The Inclusive Higher Education Opportunities Grant program (established as a result of HB22-1107) provides colleges and universities across Colorado the opportunity to apply for funding to establish an inclusive higher education program on their campus. The current Spring 2024 grant cycle specifically focuses on programs in rural, Western Slope, or Community College settings.

See below for timelines, resources, and more.


Timeline


Overview

The purpose of the Inclusive Higher Education Grant Program is to allow for colleges across the state to apply for needed funding to develop, expand and solidify inclusive pathways that enable students with intellectual disabilities (ID) to have all the rights, responsibilities, privileges, benefits and outcomes that result from a higher education experience to the greatest extent possible, including academic growth, social development, career advancement, and increased independence. 

Attention will be given to increasing diversity and accessibility within expansion efforts. Expansion of inclusive higher education pathways is defined as the creation of more spots for students with ID to attend an institution of higher education and/or increasing equity and access for students with ID wishing to pursue higher education within rural, low-income, and BIPOC communities.

This is a 5-year grant program, awarding $450,000 annually to the grant-administering entity to be allocated to institutions of higher education. 

Please see the additional resources below for further details and be sure to register for an upcoming info session.

IN!'s Inclusive Higher Education Opportunities Grant is gearing up for another round of funding. Check out the details, timeline, and available info sessions to help spread the word.

IN!'s vision has always been to see students with ID be welcomed on college campuses as inclusive pathways become part of the fabric of all colleges and universities throughout Colorado. The passage of HB22-1107 last year has allowed IN! to take another step toward that vision.
